Canine Massage based in Cambridgeshire

Therapeutic Canine Massage
 
Massage is the oldest form of therapy and can be traced back to approximately 3000 B.C.  It was used by many ancient civilisations and held in high regard by the Ancient Greeks and Romans.  In simple terms, massage manipulates the soft tissues of the body such as muscles, skin, tendons, ligaments and fascia in order to produce a feeling of well being, relieve pain, aid the healing of injuries and improve muscle tone. 

The muscular system accounts for around 45% of a dog's bodyweight. It is responsible for movement and enables your dog to walk, play, run and jump. Day to day activities, injury or orthopaedic conditions can cause imbalance in your dog's muscles and lead to soreness, lameness and restricted movement. Dogs coping with ongoing problems like arthritis will have areas of overcompensation and pain referral that aggravate an already uncomfortable problem.
 

Therapeutic Canine Massage is a strong manipulative massage that helps to locate, identify and treat muscular and soft tissue problems.   An extensive knowledge of canine anatomy and physiology, advanced palpation skills and clinical manipulation of muscle is used to rehabilitate injuries, lengthen short muscle tissue and address scar tissue, knots, spasms and strains.  

 

Massage therapy can help to bring the muscular system back into balance, restore mobility, significantly support orthopaedic conditions such as hip dysplasia and arthritis, improve quality of life and promote general well-being.
